The Petit Eden is an educational project created by a multicultural group of families. Our intention is to integrate the various elements of life in an environment that allows and encourages openness to explore the spontaneity of being oneself, from love and respect, allowing us authentic and constantly evolving learning.
At Petit Eden children are in contact with nature, in a space that transmits harmony and union with the Earth. Through play and experiencing activities in relaxed, prepared and welcoming environments, children Children are accompanied taking into account their authenticity, their learning rhythms, their life processes and their motivations.
The project needs a new space to be able to carry out the daily activities, so that the children can be distributed in different spaces when they carry out the different activities of the day, especially at the time of year when it is colder or hotter.
We want to create a unique and welcoming space surrounded by nature. Our school is located in a privileged natural environment, surrounded by forest and vineyards. We want to take advantage of this opportunity to offer girls and boys a special place where they can learn in a playful and creative way, and enjoy a safe and healthy environment.
Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign
One of the main objectives of El Petit Eden is for it to be an integrative project for all types of families, trying to find creative proposals to advance the project without this entailing an unaffordable cost for families, which is why we want to This project will open the option for you to also help us make a project like this grow and guarantee the needs of the children and companions of Petit Eden.
The Tipi project will represent a great improvement that will add additional space to carry out dance, psychomotor, emotional development or music activities in a welcoming environment. The tipi, with its wooden poles and the canvas that surrounds it, creates a calm and cozy environment that is closed and open at the same time, connected to the outside, with the light and sounds of the forest.
We need to install a large tipi with a base of 9 square meters with capacity so that groups of 10 children can move freely in the space.
The main structure will be installed on a wooden platform, a comfortable, practical and warm floor, which will guarantee the durability of the tipi. The platform will also be an effective thermal insulator that prevents humidity in the space.
The tipi will be built by professionals in the construction of wooden structures and natural materials, and will comply with all necessary safety regulations.

The Petit Eden companions are a human team trained to care for and respect the vital processes of children, their desire to learn and their innate natural curiosity.
We provide the pedagogical vision of the project, offering a loving, familiar, trusting and tender environment so that the child can be himself, can decide and relate fully with others and above all can learn and respect his own rhythm.
We learn every day by accompanying children to experience, explore and feel their inner selves in daily contact with nature.
